What to Do After a Car Accident

A car accident may only take a few seconds, but its impact can last a lifetime. In the minutes following a car accident, the involved parties are shaken and may be in a minor state of shock. However, the steps you take following a car accident can make all the difference while speaking with the authorities and dealing with the insurance company.

There are several actions you can take to speed up the process and get back to your life if you have been involved in a car accident.

  • Seek medical attention immediately for you or others involved in the car accident. The welfare of the involved parties should obviously be the first thing anyone worries about. However, do not discuss the accident with anyone, even if it may have been your fault. Admission may become valid in court at a later date.
  • Be sure to get the names, addresses, and phone numbers of witnesses to the car accident. Although police will speak with witnesses, you will still have the information if it is lost later on. Write down all information as soon as you can since the witnesses may not wait around for authorities to show up to make a statement.
  • Take pictures of the vehicles and the damage, as well as any skid marks. You should also take pictures that show the angle of the sun and weather as proof. Taking pictures from many angles may be important to your claim.
  • If the other party’s insurance company calls you to discuss a claim, do not say anything. The only contact between you and them should be done while your car accident attorney is present.
  • When you are filing your claim, take into account the statute of limitations. Do not wait until it is too late to file.

What to Do After a Car Accident

When you are involved in a car accident, taking the time to follow some simple steps can help make the difference in a personal injury lawsuit. The moments following a car accident can be confusing and you may not be thinking clearly, but slowing down for a moment to consider the next logical step can help you gather the evidence necessary to prove negligence in these cases.

What to Do After a Car Accident

Write this down and put it in your glove box for easy reference:

  • Check yourself and your passengers for injury
  • Call 911
  • Take pictures of the scene with a camera or your phone
  • Contact your insurance company, but do not admit fault
  • Wait for, and cooperate with, emergency personnel
  • File a police report, but do not admit fault

Once the accident has been cleared and you are told you can leave the scene, contact your physician to schedule an appointment. Injuries like traumatic brain injury may not be apparent right after an accident but can be detected by a medical professional.
